1987 Buick Grand National

-Cold Air Intake w/AEM Filter

-Duttneck Intercooler

-RJC Powerplate
-Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator
-F Body Radiator

The interior is original and in good condition. I did replace the headliner last year with a unit from Highway Stars. The drivers seat has one small hole in the material. I have left it as the replacement seat covers are not of the same material as the originals. and felt preserving the interior of this car was more important to me. I did replace the orginal Delco radio with a Delco AM/FM/CD radio using the GM 12 to 21 pin adapter harness. The vehicle is also equipped with an optional digital display instrument cluster. I did add an A-Pillar that houses oil pressure and boost gauges. along with the LED lights for the alky kit. It is a T-top package car. and has the T-top shades which I have always used to help keep the interior cool and protected from the sun.

The vehicle is a late build 1987 model. with a build date of 10/87. This is one of the last GN's built. as the final vehicle was built on December 12. 1987.

If asked to rate the exterior of this car. I would rate it 7 out of 10. I believe it to have been repainted prior to my ownership. but cannot confirm this. It shows very well for what I consider a driver quality vehicle. The car has been detailed at least twice a year since I have owned it. The finish is not perfect. however I still get many compliments on it whenever or where ever I drive it. It is rust free. and came to the Midwest from the Pacific Northwest as I was told by the previous owner. Again. I cannot confirm this to be fact. I attended nine car shows this summer with the vehicle. and won awards at each show.

The steering. suspension. and brakes are all in excellent condition. I did add the Kirban rear seat brace kit to stiffen up the body and help with better handling.

The trunk mat was replaced when I bought the vehicle. and the original spare tire. jack. etc. is all in place.

The odometer reads 33. xx miles. I do not believe this to be actual mileage on the vehicle. nor do I know what the actual mileage is.



Keep in mind. this vehicle is almost 30 years old. and I will be the first to tell you it is not perfect. The following items are minor. and would require attention if they bothered a new owner:

-The cruise control is inoperative. I believe it to be the turn signal lever failing.

-The AC does not blow cold air. It has been retrofitted to R134A prior to my ownership. worked for awhile. but has not the last few years. I prefer windows down myself. so it has not been a priority to me.

-The window tint would likely require removal and/or replacement. It is older. it is not the best job in my opinion. and someone else may want to address this issue.

-All weatherstripping is original. I chose not to replace this. as the reviews and feedback on the aftermarket replacement kits is not good.

-The power radio antenna does not retract down. I have the motor unplugged.

-The passenger wiper seems to be loose. I suspect an issue with the wiper transmission. I do my best to not drive the vehicle in the rain. but have Rain X on the windshield and it works very well!

-There is a small oil leak from the rear main seal. If you are privy to Turbo Buicks. you understand this. If you are not. its a common trait on these engines.

The sale will include a very thick file of receipts of everything that has been done on this vehicle.

I do not need to sell this car. please no low-ball offers. I reserve the right to end the auction at any time as the vehicle is also for sale locally. I highly recommend and encourage third party inspections! If you would like to see something on the vehicle that is not shown in a photo. please email me and I will do so. A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT of $500 is due via PayPal within 24 hours end of auction. The balance due before or at the time of vehicle delivery.
